Hey guys, I just picked up a Bolex 16 pro and it doesn't seem to want to feed the film through the camera.  I know its an auto-load feature, but it seems like the motor is not running when I turn on the system. Is there another switch or something? Is the motor dead, or possibly just stuck from not being used in probably 10-20 years? 

 

Thanks for any information you have!!

I've taken a look at these, and even with the german manuals and things I am still un-able to get the motor to run. Not too sure if I'm doing something wrong, and if that motor is replaceable or not?
